Washington', Jan. 23. The department
f agriculture is not behind in its prepara
tions for an exhibit at the Columbian
World's fair. Four car loads altogether
have been shipped so far, and Mr. Willita,
the representative of this department upon
the government board, as well as chairman
of the board itself, expresses the hope that
not less than one-half of the material for
the entire 'exhibit will be shipped to Chica
go before Feb. 15, about which time the
actual work of installation will begin.
The educational Exhibit.
Commissioner of Education W. I,. Har
ris intimates that the exhibit of the bureau
of education will be a particularly inter
esting one. Among the exhibits will be 1
samples of text books printed during the
earliest years of the settlement of the
country. Models will be secured from the
patent office shoeing the evolution of
school furniture and fittings. laboratory
teachers and students will daily exhibit
quickly performed experiments in heat,
light, sound, electricity, etc,
'A Great Show or Fish.
The exhibit of the United States fish
commission is very far advanced. The j
commission will be represented in two i
buildings, viz., in the Lnited States gov
ernment building and in the Aquarial
building. The more important exhibit
will be in the government building. Its
exhibit will be flanked on one side by that
of the agricultural department, and on the
other by that of the interior department.
One half of the space alloted to the com
mission will be devoted entirely to illus
trate the practical workings of the fishing t
industry of the country. j
Scientific l'lsti Culture. J
Frobftbly the most instructive portion of
the exhibit will 1 that illustrating the
methods employed by the scientific branch
of the fish commission in investigating the
oabits of the fish, ami it will include speci
mens of deep sea dredging, casts of fishes
and collections of various kinds, etc. The
space 30x00 feet will be devoted to an
illustration of the methods now used in
hatching trout, salmon, whitefisli, cod,
mackerel, etc. The only exhibit of live
fish in the government, building will be of
those which art; hatched by the devices
used in the fish culture exhibit, and they
will be kept only long enough to demon
strate to the public how the work is done
and the means by which the commis
sion obtains the millions of small fish
which nre annually distributed in the
waters of the conntry.
The Finny Tribe at Home.
Independent of the exhibit to be made in
the government buildinfl is the live fish
exhibit in the aquarium. The structure
is the largest building used as an aqua
rium with a single exception, viz: that at
Brighton, England. The exhibit will be
so arranged as to give the beholder the
idea that he is standing in the depths of
the sea and is looking upward at the fish
living, as it were, in their natural homes.
The twenty or more fish commission sta
tions throughout the country are being
drawn on for material for the fresh water
exhibit and the fish commission steamers
along the coast are using all their spare
time in gathering marine specimens.
THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SATOLLI,
According to Bishop Keane- Dan Voor
fj hees Daughter Ones to Rome.
Washington, Jan. 2a Bishop Keane,
rector of the Roman Catholic university
here, where Mgr, Satolll's permanent
headquarters are established, gave a
special dinner yesterday in honor of the
designation of Mgr. Satolli as permanent (
apostolic delegate to the United States. In j
tne course or a speecn .uisnop Keane ex
plained the significance of Satolli's ap
pointment. Heretofore, he said, the Roman
Catholic church in this country had been
under a territorial form of government,
managed by a bureau at Rome. "Now,"
said he, "it approaches the dignity of a reg
ular governmental organization and has
established in its midst a branch of the
holy father's supreme court."
Becomes One of the Faithful.
Cardinal Gibbons came over from Balti
more Wednesday last to confirm Miss
Voorhees, daughter of the senator from
Indiana, upon her entrance into the Roman
Catholic church. After that ceremony,
which took place at St. Michael's in the
presence of a few friends only, the cardinal
was presented to the large circle of the
senator's and Miss Voorhees acquaint
ances at a 5 o'clock tea. He wore his scar
let mantle and beretta. As the members
of the church approached he extended hU
hand and as they kissed the ring they
made a profound obesiance. It was a radi
cal and striking innovation upon the rou
tine of the oruinary tea.
The Cardinal Preaches.
Cardinal Gibbons preached in St. Mat
thew's churcL yesterday to an overflowing
congregation, comprising most of the di
plomatic corps and many other distin
guished persons. Special music was ren

conntry. After the services the cardinal
held a reception at the residence of Colonel
The Delay In the McConias Case.

Ex-Secretary Blaine Weaker.
Washington-, Jan. 23. That Mr. Blaine
is weaker is tt a only knowledge his physi
cians gained of any change in his condition
yesterday. ITe is apparently about the
same as he has been for several days past.

day. Nothing notable occurred at the resi
dence last night.

THE CATTLEMEN GO ACQUIT.
Getting a Jury Costs Too Much Money for
Cheyenne, Wyo., Jan. 23. There was a
first-class sensi.tiou in the district court
here Saturday t. fternoon. The case against
the cattlemen, wassailed, when the sheriff
appeared and made the statement that he
was unable to summon more jurors unless
the expense was paid by some one, that it
would cost not less than ?S00 to go into the
country and suiumon the required number
of veniremen, a id unless the authorities of
Johnson countj would furnish the money
he could not gei the jurymen. Alvin Ben
nett, the prosoc iting attorney of Juhiison
county, at once held a conference with a
number of lending citizens of Johnson
county and reti rning to the court made a
motion to dismiss the trials.
Objection by the Defense.
The defense objected and insisted that
they be tried, so that if acquitted they
would be free ir. the future. It was finally
arranged to try the defendants four at a
time with a nev jury each time, the jury
in each trial ro find for acquittal. This
was done and tiie situation is looked upon
here as a happy termination for all parties,
as it has been c early demonstrated that it
would have b en impossible to secure a
jury, and even admitting that some kind
of a jury could have been secured it would
have been impossible for the state to se
cure a conviction.

Mob Brutality by Seeking Solitude rn
Den ver, Jan. 2ft. There was a riot in
Denver last night. Not since the Chinese
riot of 1880, in which four men were killed,
has there been such excitement in the city.
For the past two months Rev. Dean Hart
has agitated the closing of the Sunday
places of amusement. He has been severe
in his criticisms and spared none. The
dean is an Englishman. He is not a citi
Een of the United States. He refuses to
become naturalized, and boasts of it. He
does not read American newspapers, and
hence the managers of the places of amuse
ment felt indignant. -As he was about the
only minister who made the demand they
refused to close.
Theaters Defy the Law.
P Inflnence was brought to bear upon the
police board, with the result that the
theaters wete notified that if they opened
their doors last night, arrests would follow.
Flaring advertisements appeared in the
newspapers announcing that the doors
would be open last night, and great crowds
assembled. The police appeared, and
players and musicians were arrested. The
Turner hall, Stark's Austro-Hungarian
orchestra at Tabor and Sackett's Wonder
land were compelled to refund admittance
money to their audiences, which filled the
bouses to overflowing. hen the crowds
reached the street some one proposed that
Dean Hart be visited.
And of Course There Was a Mob.
Xo sooner was this said than the crowd
was on the march, men and women side by
side. Armed with sticks aud stones picked
u p on the way and burning with fury the
crowd stopped at the residence at Twenti
eth and Welton streets. "Into the yard!"
some one shouted. The mob moved against
the fence and it gave way like so much
paper. A murmur was followed by a yell,
aud a shower of stones was sent through
the windows. The porches were mounted
and in a few moments a riot was in pro
gress. The clang of gongs sounded and pa
trol wagons from the fii-st and second di
vision tuitions rushed through the crowd.
Desperate l ight With the Police.
Men were knocked down by the horses
and then the police, club? in hand, beat the
mob back and drove the people out of the
hallway, and after a sharp but desperate
struggle forced the angry men buck: Five
hundred persons were in the crowd and
they determined to make another on
slaught. Lieutenant Ciay and thirty po
licemen stood their ground. They fought
the infuriated men with their clubs, but
were forced back to the porch and finally
to the hallway. Then, ns a last resort,
revolvers were drawn. The clang of gongs
was heard again and wagons hurried
away for reinforcements.
Broken H t ails the Fashion.
The sight of determined bluecoats, pre
pared to resist to the last, sulxiued the
mob. They shrank back, muttering and
cursing the police. Many were injured in
the head, lilai k eyes were numerous, ai:d
blood from the pounding and scratching
flowed freely. When the wagon drove up
women fainted, and the excitement was in
tense. How seriously the members of the
mob were injured cannot be stated, for the
police could not make an arrest and the
wounded were taken care of by friends.
Ke enforcements soon arrived and the mob
was forced back.
Exit the Drnn in a Hurry.
Dean Hart had been advised that the
crowd was coming ami had barely time to
escape by means of a convenient back dor.r
and with the aid of a fast horse. Had the
crowd managed to lay hands on him there
is no telling what miht have happened,
and it was only when Lieutenat Clay in
formed them that the dean had escaped
that they would retire. And while these
sovereigns were amusing themselves as
narrated in the foregoing the dean's
daughter was lying seriously ill at his

FAILURE OF A NATIONAL BANK.
The Capital at Lincoln, Neb., Suspended
Loss of the State.
Lincoln, Jan. 23. The startling an
nouncement of the failare of the Capital
National bank was made late last night
and with it came the announcement that
the state treasurer was caught in the crash
in the sum of $225,000. This news spread
rapidly and caused much excitement. It
was stated that the failure is a bad one,
but the exact situation could not be ascer
tained last night.
The State Amply Secured.
The state is secured by a bond for $700,
000. The deposits amount to about $625,
000, and of this amount between $175,000
and $250,000 are state funds, for which the
bond of the treasurer will be liable. Cash

of this statement.
